After a pleasant day out with Ray, Louise comes face to face with Mack in the village. Determined to defend his name Mack approaches Louise, who finds herself paralysed with fear. Fortunately for Louise, Ray is close by and quickly rushes to her defence. A confrontation breaks out and Ray can no longer restrain himself. He gets physical with Mack – but soon starts regretting it and leaves Louise more vulnerable than ever. Home alone, Louise locks the door – unaware that Terry is lurking outside in the darkness with his eye on Mill Cottage! Edna is perturbed to see that Jarvis’s garden is cluttered with old bits of junk. The noise from next door becomes unbearable. Edna shouts over the fence that she has had enough. Jarvis remains unconcerned for his new neighbour's sanity. She is further riled by the fact the rest of the village have really warmed to Jarvis – even Tootsie is finding their new neighbours backyard more interesting than their own.
